Woodfuel WIG marks the New Year by passing £5 million in grant enquiries

Woodfuel WIG marks the New Year by passing £5 million in grant enquiries

It may be a new year, but the Woodfuel WIG grant scheme has seen the same high interest as always, with nearly £100,000 worth of enquiries gathered in the first few working days of 2013 taking the overall total past £5 million.

The grants can be used to improve or create new tracks in woodland areas so that timber can be extracted, often for the first time in decades. Much of this timber goes into the wood fuel supply chain, displacing fossil-fuel based heating and helping to reduce CO2 emissions. So far the grant has saved more than 70,000 tonnes of CO2.

The Woodfuel Woodland Improvement Grant is available to woodland owners throughout the South East, South West, and Cumbria. Running until December 2013.
